Pierre Golf Set for ESD on Saturday

It’ll be two weeks on Saturday the last time the Pierre Governor Golf team was able to compete and on Saturday, the Governors will begin the march to the postseason as they compete in the ESD invite in Mitchell.

The Governors were supposed to be in Mitchell last Friday but they were unable to attend due to the COVID spread and Tuesday’s invite was canceled because Watertown is dealing with a COVID outbreak in the school district. Pierre Golf Head Coach Chris Swiden says it’s tough not being able to compete in Mitchell the week prior to get a feel for the course…

In AA golf every team can compete in the state tournament so the ESD isn’t necessary to qualify for state but Swiden says it’s still tough…

And Swiden says he’s been impressed with the team throughout the season…

The Golf team is in Mitchell on Saturday for the ESD and the state meet will be on October 5 and 6 in Sioux Falls.
